How We Met

Mackie came into my life when I needed him most. I had just spent almost 4 years with a horse that was all wrong for me. Mackie was such a willing partner, he made having a horse such a treat. He tried to please no matter what you asked of him. Knowing what I know now, I realize that life was really tough for Mackie. He had many health issues, everything from mild colic to choke, to allergic reaction to a vaccine and then a reaction to the antibiotic. His biggest challenge was getting and surviving EPM not once but twice. As a result of the EPM meds he developed gastric ulcers, it just went on and on. Thru all of this Mackie never once complained. It looked like we were finally on our way to enjoying ourselves, when his behavior changed, nothing drastic, just a little off. After a consultation with our Vet, an appointment was made at the University Equine Hospital for Mackie to see a cardiologist. The night before our appointment I told Mackie that we were going to get some answers, in my heart I knew it was not good, but I had hope because after all, these people were specialists. It was a very long day, filled with tons of tests and information overload. When all the info had been gathered, we sat down and they explained to me that he was in heart failure, only one of his four heart valves was functioning. They felt that this condition had been present for years, they said for me not to beat myself up, it was NOT something that either Dr. Cook or I had missed. Typically horses don't show symptoms because they keep trying, they said Mackie never gave up, his heart did.. His prognosis was poor to hopeless, I had 3 options, 1. leave him at the hospital and treat, however, they told me that they did not recommend treatment, even if it did help, it would be short lived. 2. take him home to die, but it would not be a peaceful death. 3. I could let him go now. I choose to let him go, I stayed with him, at his side the whole time, it was important to me that my face and my voice be the last he saw and heard. I held him and told him how much he was loved, I came home alone that day. He was only 12. I donated his body to the University Hospital, I got great comfort from knowing that his heart might help someone else's horse. I miss him everyday. Love you Mackie. We will meet again.

This Valentine's Day will mark 11 months since I lost my best friend Zorro. I keep waiting for it to get easier, but each morning I wake up and pray that it was just a horrible nightmare, that 18 years together wasn't cut short by someone's stupid mistake. It has been such a comfort to come to HC where all of you have been so supportive. Thank you for helping me get through some of the worst of it, and for being as excited as me when I adopted Calypso. I'm so glad to be a part of a community that truly understands and is there for me.

Come visit me, Zorro & Calypso.

Buddy Guy here I come...
So after weeks of scouring the Buddy Guy website and checking the Canadian appearances, remember I was hoping he would add London. He didn't, but one day about a week ago I saw a small blurb that said Buddy Guy in Kitchener Ontario, I thought it must have been a previous show, but I checked it out and sure enough he is only playing two Canadian stops on this tour, Toronto and Kitchener. Kitchener is pretty close to us, but when I went to the Box Office there were only "nose bleed" seats left. I was so upset that this show was not on the Official buddy Guy website and all the great seats were sold already. Remember no one has worse luck than me...Then I saw an ad for two front row seats for re sale. David warned me that ticket fraud is a big deal, so be very careful. Long story short, turns out the man that purchased these tickets is also a huge fan, however, he has a vacation conflict for the day of the show, he wasn't sure they would be back in time so he decided to sell the tickets. He wanted the same as he paid, not looking to make a profit. I contacted the Box Office to verify that these were in fact legitimate seats and after they confirmed it, I said SOLD. April 20, Centre in the Square Kitchener Ontario. early retirement present for me. I posted a pic of the theatre, and the two yellow dots are our seats. I'm so excited. Have a great weekend. Love Donna Lee

Yay! Corral panels are up. A friend helped me with them. She brought a 5 year old girl named Rosie with her. Lisa said Rosie has the mental capacity of a 2 year old. She brought a bag of carrots for Sadie and fed them to her. Rosie, also, rode bareback. My internet is running soooo slow. Taking forever to vote. Hope you're all doing well. Love to each of you and a vote.

The wind is horrible and cold. Rained last night. Sadie's corral is flooded, again. Rick's suppose to pick up my new corral panels today. Those panels will be connected on the west side at a slightly uphill angle. Should give her dryer space. Anxious to get the corral expanded, too. Have a wonderful Monday. Love and a vote.

is it spring yet...
Yesterday morning after their breakfast I put them out, it seemed to be going OK, but then the wind came up, it was stupid, both of them tearing around. There is still quite a bit of ice under the snow, so to be safe back inside, after lunch the wind died down, the sun came out and it was quite mild, so out we went. Looks like today will be the same thing, rain moving in around lunch. Enjoy your day, one more closer to spring...Love Donna Lee

finally a break from the snow...
It has been a tough week, I'm back in physio for my shoulder, work related however work will not acknowledge that because I had surgery so it is considered a pre existing injury, never thought after 15 years of loyal service I'd be treated this way, I'm not asking for restrictions, just admit that it is due to repetitive work...I'll make it thru the last 7 months, if it kills me. I guess it is all about the bottom line to a company the size of Maple Leaf Foods.
The horses are doing well, it has been a crazy winter for them, so much ice, they deal well with being left in for safety, harder on me than them, we left a vote, have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee
